Solar photovoltaic [PV] pumping has in the last years undergone a series of technical and price developments resulting in advanced, robust, affordable, climate smart, versatile, low maintenance equipment. Favorable policies from an increasing number of governments and donors have opened an opportunity for organizations to scale-up and mainstream the use of solar PV pumping in their water supply projects. Solar PV Pumping is now cost-competitive with diesel powered water schemes in all sizes.
Relief organizations have been however slow in adopting and benefiting from the advantages that solar PV pumping solutions brings nowadays, still relying largely in diesel generator powered pumps. Lack of technical expertise and awareness has been identified as the single most important barrier to scale up solar PV pumping in relief operations.
This booklet is aimed to water engineers, especially those working in emergency and post and protracted emergencies with a goal to raise their awareness and understanding of the opportunities that solar PV pumping solutions bring, its advantages and disadvantages and the main issues that should be taken into account when assessing, designing, installing, and carrying out operation and maintenance work. | »

This technical manual describes borehole aspects associated with groundwater development mainly for rural domestic supply and groundwater monitoring boreholes and the associated groundwater monitoring or management aspects thereof. This manual is an update of the earlier manual by the Ministry of Water Development (MWD), 2001, with a chapter on groundwater monitoring, database management and water permits added. The accompanying documents as Standard Operating Procedures (SOPS) for groundwater sampling, aquifer pumping test, groundwater level monitoring, groundwater use permitting, drilling and construction of national monitoring boreholes, operation and management of the national groundwater database.
The documents were produced under National Water Development Program 2 funded by the African Development Bank (AFDB) through consultative consultancy by Aurecon Consultants in 2012 and edition for printing was supported by JICA in 2016. | »
